Today was a special performance by the Cervélo Bigla Pro Cycling Team. Lotta lepistö was the first to annimate the race before Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig went on the attack,  a move that would earn her the best climbers jersey. Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio went on to finish third with Uttrup Ludwig holding on for fourth.
